Director of Child & Family Programs at Sacramento Children's Home
From volunteer to Director of 24-Hour Programs, Annette is the Sacramento Children’s Home’s ultimate staff success story. After volunteering with the organization for six months, she officially joined as a Residential Counselor in 1985. Annette worked her way up through the Residential Program and spent a large part of her career as the Program Manager. In 2018, she joined the Leadership team when she became the Director of 24-Hour Programs, overseeing both the Residential and Crisis Nursery programs. Like many here at SCH, her favorite part of the job is the interactions with the children, but also with the caring, supportive staff who provide direct care and impact to the kids. In her spare time, Annette enjoys taking care of animals, baking, and traveling with her husband, whom she met at the Children’s Home. Annette is a graduate of UC Davis, where she obtained her Bachelors in Zoology and Masters in Counseling Psychology.
